My great grandfather was born William Elza Puyear b. April 1877 in ? Kentucky, he married Irene Waltrip November 2, 1898. in McLean County Kentucky He moved to Mississippi county Missouri about 1914, they had 8 children (I have info on them all). My grandfather was Eugene Prayor b. June 27, 1903 in Fancy Farms KY and married Kathleen O'Connor 19? in Mounds IL, she was his first wife and my grandmother, they had 5 children.
Susan you mention hearing as a child of an argument between brothers and a name change, well thats exactly what happened with my great grandfather and his brother Hensley, the nane went from Puyear to Prayor, why I don't know. Any help please.
